How can I reformat my passport drive to FAT32 format?

I know that I have to go to the disk utility, but I am not sure for the next steps which I have to take. I have been trying, but without success.

  • you open disk utility with the hard drive connected then click the drive go to erase and under fromat click "MS-DOS (FAT)
    but i should warn you fat32 can not take a file that is bigger than 4gb but it does have compatibility with windows
    but some HD movies from itunes may not fit because of the format
    i reccomend
    "Mac OS Extended"
